Announcement   WELCOME! If you are looking for eye on the sparrow designs, you have to come to the right place. With loads of excitement, starting in 2016, we are now Reciprocity Designs! Reciprocity is the process of giving and receiving- which describes the experience most music lovers have with music perfectly!

We welcome you and are excited to move forward this year with a new direction. As not only a jewelry maker of awesome recycled wares, but an eating disorder therapist, I have the luxury of using equine therapists! This year with the start of Reciprocity Designs will also be the beginning of Reciprocity Farms.

Reciprocity Farms will help throw away race horses learn a new career that will enable them to find new homes. As we are giving to them, they will work as our equine therapy team in teaching clients through their natural communication and mirroring. Each piece of jewelry will go towards supporting these efforts as we watch the meaning of reciprocity in action.

We are grateful to all of those who have purchased designs through eye on the sparrow designs. Your purchases over the years have donated over $7,500 to the Carter Albrecht Music Foundation, an organization who helps high school students receive music scholarships. We have also donated to the fight against Cystic Fibrosis and the National Brain Tumor Society. in addition, we donated over $4,000 to various kickstarter and pledgemusic campaigns in efforts to help musicians voices be heard.

For my dear friend Carter, for which eye on the sparrow designs was originally started- I know you are sitting on the side of the arena working your magic in the hearts of my clients as you did in mine. I am forever grateful.


CUSTOM ORDERS WELCOME! If you don't see your size, let me know. I usually have extra strings on hand from each musician. I can fix you up!

SUPPORT LOCAL MUSIC. eye on the sparrow designs is supported by the local music community. Check the 'musician' tab for designs including the name of the musician who has lent their support to the creation of 'restoration'.

WHOLESALE ORDERS accepted. I have a large stock of recycled strings from a local guitar retailer. Contact me for details on wholesale pricing.

Gorgeous, super cool earrings. I play guitar so I love that this work is made from recycled strings. Even better that sales benefit charitable organizations. I'll be back for more!

The bracelet is very good looking but impossible to wear on the wrist, the size is right but the hand is too big for passing through...beautiful object, but unfortunately pointless...

About

Handmade to GIVE BACK!

“THE VOICE THAT MY FRIEND SHARED WITH ME GAVE ME THE WORDS TO BELIEVE IN MYSELF. THAT GAVE ME THE IDEA: I WANTED TO USE IT TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, TO CONTRIBUTE TO MAKING THE COMMUNITY STRONGER.”

eye on the sparrow has a serious amount of purpose. Like purpose to the umpteenth degree. I started my jewelry company after losing a very special musician friend. Struck with the need to preserve his memory—and to use the proceeds as a force of good in the music community—I began creating handcrafted jewelry made with recycled guitar and bass strings. And, in addition to funding a seriously noble cause, the industrial chic jewelry just looks really rad. So rad that you may be tempted to break into air guitar at various points in your day. And I highly recommend that.

    I'm the owner, designer, shipper, web curator. I do it all for eye on the sparow designs. Spending time designing and creating jewelry pieces is my calm at the end of a long day. I love connecting with others who enjoy the power of music.
